Netflix’s The Innocence Files with Alex Gibney, Roger Ross Williams, Liz Garbus, Cynthia Littleton, Peter Neufeld, Vincent Southerland and Derrick Hamilton

How do innocent people end up in prison? The Innocence Project has been exploring this problem—and combating it—for decades. And now a new Netflix documentary series, The Innocence Files, is pulling back the veil on their work.

Join us for an eye-opening, two-part look inside America’s deeply flawed criminal justice system. The first conversation—with The Innocence Files’ award-winning directors Liz Garbus, Alex Gibney, and Roger Ross Williams—introduces us to The Innocence Project’s longstanding fight against wrongful conviction and the systemic racism that continues to plague the American criminal justice system. The second conversation—with Innocence Project co-founder Peter Neufeld, Executive Director of NYU’s Center on Race, Inequality and the Law, Vincent Southerland, and Brooklyn Exoneree and Criminal Justice Reform Advocate Derrick Hamilton—gives us a deeper look into the organization’s history and the results of its tireless, ongoing work. Don’t miss these two extraordinary discussions.
